    art

    Some people think that art is an essential subject in school while others think it is a waste of time.

    What does art refer here?

    Does it mean painting and sculpture making? or it could mean music, painting, literature, dance.

    I am not sure what they refer to?

    Re: art

    If it's just referred to as "art", I would say it only covers painting, drawing and maybe sculpture. If it's "The Arts", it would cover art, dance, theatre, literature etc.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: art

    It's unlikely to cover literature without the capitalisation.

    Re: art

    Art classes will often encompass most of the hands-on creative processes, even for things that are more in the craft realm, unless the school happens to differentiate between 'art' and 'craft'. My college for example lists classes like metalsmithing/jewelry, ceramics, and glassblowing as 'art' classes in addition to the painting, drawing, and sculpture classes.

    Re: art

    Dancing, drama, music, etc. are calling the "performing arts".
